  • business and personal contact information (such as name, postal and email addresses, and telephone number); and

Depending on the nature of our relationship with you, we may collect Personal Data concerning you in the following categories:

  • Identifiers (e.g., real name, postal address, email address);
  • Commercial information (e.g., products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, Personal Data disclosed in a sale or acquisition process);

  • information from third party data providers or publicly available sources for anti-money laundering, background checking and similar purposes, and to protect our business and comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

2. Information We Collect By Automated Means

When you visit our Site or open our emails, we may collect certain information by automated means (such as by cookies, web server logs, web beacons and JavaScript). The information we collect in this manner includes your IP address, network location, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, referring URLs, information on actions taken on our Site, and dates and times of website visits. Cookies are files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings on your device. We also may use these and similar technology in emails we send you to collect certain information, such as whether you opened or clicked on links in our email.

Our Site may use cookies (such as HTTP, HTML5 and Flash cookies) as well as other types of local storage (such as browser-based or plugin-based local storage). Some of these cookies may be placed by third parties such as our service providers. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict or disable certain cookies. You also may be able to delete your Flash cookies or adjust your Flash cookie settings by visiting the Adobe Flash Website Storage Settings Panel and Global Storage Settings Panel. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of our Site or other websites and online services.

In conjunction with gathering information through cookies, our web servers may log information such as your device type, operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your device is located. We also may record information such as the address of the web page that referred you to our Site and the IP address of the device you used to connect to our Site. We may log information about your interaction with the Site, such as which pages you visit. To control which web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags on our web pages called “web beacons”, which are small files that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies. We also may send instructions to your device using JavaScript or other computer languages to gather the sorts of information described above and other details about your interactions with the Site.

We may use third-party web analytics services on our Site, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers help us analyse how visitors use the Site. The information obtained for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) may be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To learn about opting out of Google Analytics, please click here.

The providers of third-party plugins and widgets on our Site, such as embedded videos and social media sharing tools, may use automated means to collect information regarding your use of the Site and your interactions with the plugins and widgets. This information is subject to the privacy policies or notices of the providers of the plugins and widgets.

3. How We Use the Information We Obtain

We may use, disclose or otherwise handle the information described in this Online Privacy Notice for the following purposes to:

  • operate, evaluate, develop, promote, and improve our business (including developing new products and services; enhancing, improving and analysing our products and services; managing our communications; managing our premises; and performing accounting, auditing and other internal functions);
  • manage your investments;
  • comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements, relevant industry standards and our policies, including our Terms and Conditions of Use;
  • protect against, identify and prevent fraud, money-laundering, breach of confidence, cyber attack, theft of proprietary materials, financial or business crimes, and other unlawful activity;
  • in some cases, in order to operate, administer and improve the user’s experience of the Site;
  • provide our products and services to you, such as market commentary and email alerts;
  • send you (or produce) promotional materials, newsletters and other communications, including in visual and audio form (such as videos, podcasts and online seminars);
  • communicate with you about, and administer your participation in, special events, programs, promotions, offers, surveys and market research;
  • respond to your inquiries;
  • verify your information; and
  • perform data analyses (including market and consumer research, demographic analyses and anonymization and aggregation of information).

 

In addition, we use information collected through cookies, web beacons, web server logs and other automated means for purposes such as (i) customizing our users’ visits to our Site, (ii) delivering content tailored to our users’ interests and the manner in which our users browse our Site, and (iii) managing our Site and other aspects of our business.

We may also use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice, and if required, obtain consent, at the time of collection.

We will only process your Personal Data as necessary so that we can pursue the purposes described above. Where we process your Personal Data for our legitimate interests as a business or those of a third party, we do so only where we have concluded that our processing does not prejudice you or your privacy in a way that would override our legitimate interest in pursuing those purposes.

When we collect Personal Data from you, unless indicated otherwise, you should assume that, if we ask you for information, we need it for our business or compliance purposes. In limited circumstances, we are required to collect Personal Data to comply with a legal obligation and/or might ask you to provide information which is purely voluntary; in either case, this will be indicated to you.

If you are a former employee, worker, contractor or member of Aypa, we will continue to process your Personal Data for a reasonable period following the end of your employment or engagement for our legitimate business and/or our legal compliance purposes and/or for the establishment or defence of a legal claim. Further, in some instances, we may process your data to perform our obligations under the contract between us (e.g. to pay you your final salary payment after your termination date). We only carry out such processing where we have concluded that our processing does not prejudice you or your privacy in a way that would override our legitimate interests in pursuing those purposes. Your data will be retained and deleted in accordance with our retention policies and procedures (as discussed further below).

4. Online Tracking and Interest-Based Advertising

We and third parties acting on our behalf (such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) may collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your interests. Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent for the processing of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes.

You may see our ads on other websites or mobile apps because we participate in advertising networks. Ad networks allow us to target our messaging to users by considering demographic data, users’ inferred interests and browsing context. These networks track users’ online activities over time by collecting information through automated means (such as by cookies, web server logs, web beacons and other similar technologies). The networks use this information to show ads that may be tailored to individuals’ interests, to track users’ browsers or devices across multiple websites or apps, and to build a profile of users’ online browsing activities. The information our ad networks may collect includes data about users’ visits to websites and apps that participate in the relevant ad networks, such as the pages or ads viewed and the actions taken on the websites or apps. This data collection takes place both on the Site and on third-party websites and apps that participate in the ad networks. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

The Site is not designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers. To learn how to opt out of ad network interest-based advertising, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices, http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/ or, for residents of Canada, www.youradchoices.ca/.

5. Information We Disclose to Others

We do not disclose Personal Data we obtain about you through the Site or other channels covered by this Online Privacy Notice, except as described in this Online Privacy Notice. We may share your Personal Data with our affiliates and subsidiaries. Depending on the nature of our relationship with you, we also share Personal Data with service providers who perform services on our behalf, our financial and transaction counterparties, our professional advisors, and your agents and representatives. We do not authorize these persons to use or disclose the information except as necessary for the purposes for which it is provided or to comply with legal requirements.

We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities, regulators and/or other government entities and/or other competent authorities based on a lawful disclosure request, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer Personal Data we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, spin-off, dissolution or liquidation).

In addition, we may share anonymous/aggregated information with third parties, such as service providers, in order to facilitate our business operations.

Information collected through third-party plug-ins and widgets on the Site (such as information relating to your use of a social media sharing tool) is collected directly by the providers of the plug-ins and widgets. This information is subject to the privacy policies of the providers of the plug-ins and widgets, and Aypa is not responsible for those providers’ information practices.

For California Residents, in the preceding 12 months, we may have disclosed Personal Data listed in any of the categories in the “Information We Obtain” section above for business purposes (in particular, as described in this section). We do not sell Personal Data.

6. Data Transfers

We may transfer the Personal Data we collect about you to recipients in countries other than the United States and Canada. 

Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. In these circumstances, the governments, courts, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain access to your Personal Data through the laws of the foreign country. Where we transfer Personal Data to other members of the Aypa group or our service providers located outside the United States or Canada, we will ensure that our arrangements with them are governed by data transfer agreements or safeguards, designed to ensure that your Personal Data is protected as required under applicable data protection laws.

7. Retention and Deletion of your Information

We intend to keep your Personal Data accurate and up-to-date. We will delete the information that we hold about you when we no longer need it.  We retain your Personal Data for as long as it is required by us for our legitimate purposes, to perform our contractual obligations, or where longer, such longer period as is required or permitted by law or regulatory obligations which apply to us.

We will retain your information in line with our retention policies and, in any event, for no longer than is necessary given the purpose for which it was collected, after which it will be deleted or anonymized.

Note that we may retain some limited information about you (even when we know that you have left the organization that you represent) so that we can maintain a continuous relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again.

8. Your Rights and Choices

We offer you certain choices in connection with the Personal Data we collect from you. To update your preferences or submit a request, please contact us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section of this Online Privacy Notice.

Where provided by law, you may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us or object at any time on legitimate grounds to the processing of your Personal Data, and we will apply your preferences going forward. You can also lodge a complaint about our processing of your Personal Data with the body regulating data protection in your country.

These rights, subject to certain limitations, may include:

Rights of access, correction and deletion. Depending on your country of residence, you may have a right of access to the Personal Data that we hold about you, and to some related information, including the purpose for processing the Personal Data, the categories of recipients of that Personal Data to the extent it has been transferred internationally, and, where the Personal Data has not been collated directly from you, the source (the “category information“). You may also have the right to require any inaccurate Personal Data to be corrected or deleted.

Right to object, and portability. Depending on your country of residence, you may be able to  object to our use of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes at any time and you may have the right to object to our processing of some or all of your Personal Data (and require it to be deleted) in some other circumstances. In some circumstances, you may also have a “data portability” right to require us to transfer your Personal Data to you or a third party, in a data portable format.

California residents may also request certain information about our disclosure of Personal Data during the prior year, including category information (as defined above). 

We review and verify requests to protect your Personal Data, and will action data protection requests fairly and in accordance with applicable data protection laws and principles.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us as set out below. 

Complaints. You can also lodge a complaint about our processing of your Personal Data with the body regulating data protection in your country.
